  1. FAA Kills Amazon’s Drone-Delivery Plans, and Our Dreams of Robots Bringing Us Stuff

    If a robot can't bring my late-night impulse buys then what's even the point?

    Ars Technica is reporting that the FAA has shot down Amazon's plans to use pilot-less drones to deliver packages. The issue could be revisited soon, but for now it seems Amazon and any other companies planning on using drones for commercial purposes are out of luck.

  2. Product Review: How the Amazon Fire TV Holds Up Against the Apple TV

    It's a video streaming box fight to the death! (Or a simple comparison.)

    Amazon recently offered Prime members a 30-day in-home trial of their Amazon Fire TV. When the Fire TV was announced it looked like Amazon had one-upped Apple in the set-top box department, but after a month of having both boxes hooked up to my TV it became clear that there were some shortcomings. So how does the Fire TV really hold up?

  3. What’s The Hold-Up On That Netflix Original Star Trek Series?

    Viacomkhaaaaaaan!

    Earlier this month Larry Nemecek disappointed many of us by debunking a rumor that Netflix and CBS were in talks to produce a new Star Trek series. Sigh. But it seems the dream may become a reality yet!

  7. Amazon Patented Taking Pictures In Front of a White Background

    Negative Space has been added to your cart

    The US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) is an easy punchline for jokes about bureaucratic inanity, but a recently-granted patent proves that reputation is deserved. Turns out Amazon has patented taking pictures in front of a white background, so I guess Shutterstock is doomed.

  8. Amazon Wants You To Add Stuff To Your Cart Using Twitter Hashtags Because Clicking is Hard

    Modern life is so difficult. What do you mean I can't shop online using only my subconscious thoughts?

    Let's say you see somebody talking about an Amazon product on Twitter, and you want to buy it. In order to do that, you have to click on the link, and then click on the "Add to Cart" button, and then complete your purchase. Ugh. Think of all the tweets you're missing when you do that! There's got to be a better way!

  9. Newly Amazon-Acquired Comixology Eliminates Store from iOS Apps, Surprising No One

    Insidery

    When it was announced that Amazon had acquired digital comics retailer Comixology, we knew there would probably be some changes coming down the pipe, and the first have arrived. They finally updated the front page of PullList.Comixology.com! Just kidding, I'm pretty sure I'm the only one who's excited about that. What really happened was that they released a new version of their iOS app that removes the ability to make in-app purchases of comics.

  10. HBO Shows Will Finally Be Available Online to Non-HBO Subscribers, But There’s a Catch

    the internet is serious business

    Or, I should say, HBO shows will finally be available online legally to non-HBO subscribers. Because, while it's technically illegal for someone who doesn't get HBO to log into someone else's HBO GO account, it's not like that ever stopped anyone. But HBO GO isn't the subject of this news. Nope. HBO's getting in bed with the Overlord of the Internet: Amazon. Edit: This just in: According to Variety HBO's Amazon deal does not include Game of Thrones. Ditto Entourage, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and Sex and the City, which have other U.S. syndication deals. And "new and future shows," including True Detective and Silicon Valley, are excluded under the current deal as well. Thanks, HBO.
